North Korean Dynasty of Delusion: Doves, Rainbows and Double Bread With Meat

Jason Buttrill, Head Writer/Researcher for The Glenn Beck Program, joined Glenn in studio today to discuss the quickly involving situation with North Korea and the incredulous propaganda successfully fed to the North Korean people about their leaders.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Welcome to the program. Jason Buttrill is joining us. He is my national security adviser and -- and helping me with a show that is on tonight. We're bringing the chalkboard back out for a lesson on North Korea. Not only what's possibly coming and what it means, but also the history of North Korea. And this is -- this is why Russia transformed, or the Soviet Union transformed, is because they were afraid of becoming something like North Korea is now, a very dangerous state.

JASON: And a lot of people, I think -- Kim Jong-un is basically like a punch line to most people. And they make it pretty easy. They've got some pretty hilarious stuff about the guy. You know, his body is so well in tune. He never has to use the bathroom.

GLENN: And they believe it.

JASON: They completely believe it.

GLENN: They believe he was brought in as a baby by a dove and was greeted by a double rainbow.

JASON: Right.

GLENN: I mean, they believe that.

JASON: When his father supposedly was born, a star was created in the sky. And the winter instantly turned to spring.

JEFFY: Right.

JASON: It goes beyond imagination. They actually think he's a god.

PAT: And they believe his birth is celebrated worldwide.

JASON: Oh, yeah. They're the good guys. They're not evil at all. It's everyone else that is.

PAT: Right.

JASON: But I don't think most people understand that. But there's some very interesting reasons why this evolution took place and why he is the way he is.

PAT: He really did golf an 18 one time.

GLENN: Oh, he was three.

PAT: Huh?

GLENN: He learned how to play golf at three.

PAT: Yeah. And he hit a hole in one on every hole.

GLENN: Yeah, but that was a little later. His first game, he did hit a hole in one. But he was a little older.

PAT: But not on every single hole.

GLENN: Yeah, not on every single hole until he was maybe eight.

JASON: But the most important thing, his dad invented the hamburger supposedly. He, of course, didn't call it that. He coined the very catchy name "double bread with meat," which didn't take hold out here. But I guess --

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Much more descriptive though. I mean, double bread with meat is -- it's just plainly a better descriptive name. They nailed it.

JASON: It is, yeah. So there's a very real reason why this is not funny to them. And they've been preparing for war for 16 years.

GLENN: With the United States.

JASON: Specifically with the United States. And I think a lot of people don't realize, okay, this is not going to be another Iraq. This is not going to be an Afghanistan. We're going to war with a country that has been preparing for this day for 60 years.

GLENN: You believe we are going to war?

JASON: So this is the thing, it depends on this next nuclear test in North Korea, which analysts say is imminent. I think it could have happened days ago. I bet they wanted to do it on the anniversary of last week, but things probably happened that delayed it.

JEFFY: Good.

JASON: They just came out and said yesterday that they're going to continue to do tests. They will not be deterred. They're going to continue to do it. It depends on what this test is. And it depends on what our intelligence says it is. Now, if this test is for a miniaturized nuclear device that could be put on top of a missile --

GLENN: How do we know that? How will we know that?

JASON: That's a good question. Only the intelligence community will know.

GLENN: The -- and whether you believe the intelligence community. There was a really disturbing situation that happened at the White House yesterday. Some of the senators walked out, rolled their eyes and said, "Well, that was interesting." Apparently, it was a mess. But a senior Trump adviser has come out and said, "We know how to advise the president." And it will make your blood run cold. But it will explain an awful lot. If this senior Trump adviser -- this is not an anti-Trump person, this is a pro-Trump person. If they're accurately telling us what's happening in the White House, you better pray to God we have the right advisers around this president.

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

Do YOU think institutions should bring back COVID-era mandates if cases increase? Let us know your thoughts HERE.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752

3. Nebraska

Population: 1,972,292

4. West Virginia

Population: 1,764,786

5. Hawaii

Population: 1,433,238

6. New Hampshire

Population: 1,402,957

7. Maine

Population: 1,393,442

8. Montana

Population: 1,139,507

9. Rhode Island

Population: 1,090,483

10. Delaware

Population: 1,031,985

11. South Dakota

Population: 923,484

12. North Dakota

Population: 780,588

13. Alaska

Population: 732,984

POLL: Should the Government control the future of AI?

Earlier this week, tech titans, lawmakers, and union leaders met on Capitol Hill to discuss the future of AI regulation. The three-hour meeting boasted an impressive roster of tech leaders including, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and others, along with more than 60 US Senators.

The meeting was closed to the public, so what was exactly discussed is unknown. However, what we do know is that a majority of the CEOs support AI regulation, the most vocal of which is Elon Musk. During the meeting, Musk called AI "a double-edged sword" and strongly pushed for regulation in the interest of public safety.

A majority of the CEOs support AI regulation.

Many other related issues were discussed, including the disruption AI has caused to the job market. As Glenn has discussed on his program, the potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real, and many have already felt the effects. From taxi drivers to Hollywood actors and writers, AI's presence can be felt everywhere and lawmakers are unsure how to respond.

The potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real.

Ultimately, the meeting's conclusion was less than decisive, with several Senators making comments to the tune of "we need more time before we act." The White House is expected to release an executive order regarding AI regulation by the end of the year. But now it's YOUR turn to tell us what YOU think needs to be done!

Should A.I. be regulated?

Can the government be trusted with the power to regulate A.I.? 

Can Silicon Valley be trusted to regulate AI? 

Should AI development be slowed for safety, despite its potential advantages?

If a job can be done cheaper and better by AI, should it be taken away from a human?

Do you feel that your job is threatened by AI?
